The author in this study introduces the process and the result of lexicological research made in Medvesalja and its surrounding (Sőreg, Ajnácskő, Csevice, Gömöralmágy, Dobfenek, Gömörpéterfala, Óbást, Egyházasbást [=Újbást], Bakóháza, Vecseklő, Medveshidegkút, Tajti). The basis of the study is from the 1162 questions of The Atlas of Hungarian Dialects answeres given on 617 questions of lexical character as language data. In order to ensure the compareness of the data, during terrain work, the author adhered to th questions of the atlas.
According to a corpus part (cca 40 thousand data) selected from the database comprising approx. 80 thousand data, the basic question was how a region’s speaking community names identical conceptions, from qualitative and quantitative point of view what characteristics lexemas have. The author analysed the data classifying them by conceptions. From the point of view of general division, and lexical division, the author compares naming systems in Medvesalj with the research point data of the areas in the atlas, 3 Hungarian (H–6: Karancslapujtő, H–7: Bárna and H–10: Borsodszentgyörgy), and 3 Slovak (Cssz–17: Bolyk, Cssz–18: Magyarhegymeg and Cssz–19: Zsip).
The author outlines the further orientation of the research, since the dialect corpus comprising of 80 thousand can launch further numerous researches. The rich material can be a basis for social linguistic examination, modification research, preparation of language atlases, complete semantics motivation examination, etc. Lajos Cs. Nagy considers the most important task to be the preparation of the language atlas. Obviously, additional collection is neccessary to make this. Such material would enable to write a relatively complete dialectological monography.
